Overview
Magpie Artisan Pie Boutique is a jewel in Philadelphia's food-town crown. Since 2012, the pocket-size shop has been turning out flaky crusts and luscious fillings. Now this book serves up Magpie's seasonal menu for home bakers everywhere: the fruity, creamy, and nutty pies; hand pies, pot pies, and quiches; and even pie shakes and pie "fries," all fine-tuned to exacting standards and with lots of step-by-step instruction for that all-important crust. Baker-owner Holly Ricciardi's upbringing deep in the Central Pennsylvania countryside provided the basis for Magpie's perfect synthesis of classic favorites and new twists--alongside down-home favorites like Sweet Crumb Pie and Shoofly Pie you'll find Holly's bourbon-infused update of her great-grandmother's special butterscotch pie as well as the ingenious (and instant-sellout) Cookie Dough Hand Pies. Ninety-plus recipes also include sweets like Cranberry Curd Mini Meringue Pies, Blueberry Rhuby Rose Pie, and Chocolate Blackout Pie, and savories like Summer Squash Pie, Ham-Leek-Dijon Potpies, and Quiche Lorraine.
From crusts to crumbles and sumptuous savories to sweet confections, there's a Magpie pie for every occasion.

Ricciardi, owner of the Philadelphia-based pie shop Magpie, presents more than 90 recipes for all things pie. The book is divided into four chapters: Flaky Piecrust; Fruity Pies; (Mostly) Creamy Pies; and Quiches, Potpies, and Other Savories. It not only covers must-know dough techniques and classic sweet and savory pieslemon curd, quiche Lorraine, roasted sweet potato pie, and apple piesbut adds a touch of whimsy with fun recipes such as Pie "Fries," an innovative way to use dough scraps; a pie milkshake; pie and ice cream in one; and a savory Old Bay Cheez-It topping, cleverly utilizing the popular snack cracker. Unique, herb-centric recipes such as basil cream pie, lavender crumb, berry custard thyme crumb pie, and rosemary crumb are welcome additions to this worthy collection. "Spin" sidebars offer easy variations on main recipes, such as turning the Breakfast Oatmeal Pie into a Tropical Oatmeal Pie with mango and toasted coconut, and transforming the Café Mocha Pie into a "nightcap" version with spirits. Full-color photos, step-by-step images, and a contemporary, clean design round out this stellar title. (Oct.)
